As September begins to wind down, even we Angelenos have to think about tossing aside our favorite Eres bikinis and gearing up for fall. Thankfully, our mild winters mean Isabel Marant denim shirts and suede booties instead of Moncler puffer jackets. But that doesn’t mean we don’t want to change our hair dramatically for fall to match our cool-weather wardrobes. Even the most ardent sun-worshippers in SoCal are ready to ditch the loose buns and hippie braids for something fresher and more sophisticated. And since beachy waves are as ubiquitous as reality-television stars here in the Southland, we’ve asked our favorite L.A. mane maestros to help you step up your hair game by dishing on the season’s hottest ‘dos. We got the experts at Byron and Tracey, Andy LeCompte, and Warren Tricomi to dish on their favorite fall trends. Not only did we snap them crafting their top tress trends on three real L.A. ladies (with insanely enviable fall manes!), but we also got tips for snagging these need-‘em-now sexy styles. Being a hot head never looked so good!
